Truth Tipped Arrows and Flaming Swords

I am teachable and I want to learn more I am open to learning the principles of the kingdom.
I am committed to representing the kingdom of God by the grace of God in Christ Jesus and I am committed to shedding weights that slow me down.





Some of my learning tools are other believer's materials.


Everyday I look down at my flesh and I say thank you to God for this flesh is what grants me the right to operate on the earth. I look at my spirit and I say thank you also for the recreated spirit is that which grants me the right to operate in the spirit through prayer.


I also thank God for the grace to please God in my words, thoughts and actions. I am grateful for the Holy Spirit the wonderful counselor who gives me good counsel and I am thankful for the grace to obey His instructions also in Jesus name, amen.


I hope you enjoy.


 TURN THOSE FIERY DARTS INTO TRUTH-TIPPED ARROWS AND FLAMING SWORDS! 


 A Word by Alane Haynes As I was just waking recently, I heard: “Turn the enemy’s fiery darts into weapons that will boomerang back and destroy his plans. Turn the darts into truth-tipped arrows and flaming swords!” We are in a battle. I have been feeling it fiercely the last month, much oppression, but then came a fresh wind of the Spirit that brought clarity and great discernment. God is moving us into new lands with new mantles and assignments, and the warfare is intense. Lately Holy Spirit is impressing upon me strategies for weapons of warfare. The last word, “Truth Bombs are Falling,” now this one. 


 Truth-tipped arrows shoot into the heart of the matter and flaming swords that decapitate the “head;” where we have given the enemy headship in the past we shred every vestige of attachment with the Word of God in the power of the Spirit! Where the enemy has held you captive, you will now render him powerless, and your victory will bring fresh anointing that will set other captives free! What I had been hearing from the enemy’s mouth were the usual fiery darts as I prepared for ministry in speaking or writing – “You don’t have anything; No one wants to listen to anything you have to say; Your books don’t make a difference,” etc. As I was listening to the Lord about the weapons this morning, He gave me some examples. 


Against the dart of “You don’t have anything,” a truth-tipped arrow would be “You’re right, I don’t have anything, but God does, and He fills my mouth (or pen).” The flaming sword would be, “I have the mind of Christ.” Against the dart of “No one wants to hear what you have to say,” the truth-tipped arrow would be, “You’re right, devil, no one wants to hear what I have to say, but they want to hear what God has to say and He’ll fill my mouth with His words!” The flaming sword response would be, “My tongue is the pen of a ready writer,” and “I am called, chosen and faithful; I created in Christ Jesus unto good works, ordained by God to walk in them.” 


The enemy sees us advancing and is on the warpath to stop us. Many are skilled at being defensive and maintaining our ground, but we are advancing now and God is giving new strategies as we go into new lands, with a fresh unction from the Holy Spirit to give us boldness in our faith and intentionality in our movement. We will make the enemy weary of keeping up with us and trying to figure out our next move! The enemy calculates what we will do based on what we’ve done in the past, and he tries to trip us up in the same areas we’ve been held captive before. As we keep moving forward, relying on the right now Word of the Lord for strategies, and the fresh wind of Holy Spirit to bring empowerment, the enemy won’t be able to calculate as we are doing and saying new things. The word of God is a two-edged sword in our mouth! "For the word of God [is] quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and [is] a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart." (Hebrews 4:12 KJV) 


When we get a Rhema word from God’s mouth into our spirit, it comes with a sharp edge. When we receive it and allow it to work in us, we activate the 2nd edge and we then release it through our mouth in power. What do I mean, allow it to work in us? When we allow the word to pierce and penetrate our inmost being, it separates the soul from the spirit. Our soul is the mind, will and emotions. This is the area where the enemy has hooks in us that hold us captive to his plans, hinder our moving forward into Kingdom manifestation in our lives. When Jesus was in the wilderness and satan was trying to tempt him out of the will and timing of God, Jesus combatted the fiery darts with the Word of the Lord, “It is written...” But He didn’t just think it and meditate on it, He released it through His mouth! Jesus overcame by speaking the Word of God, but Jesus also tells us that satan had nothing in Him (John 14:30! We know that Jesus was tempted in all ways as we are, yet He didn’t sin. Wehave to let the Word work in the hooks in our soul. We think of sin as things we do, but Jesus said whatever is not of faith is sin (Rom. 14:23)! 


When we allow the sword of the word of God to separate the soul from the spirit, we can “see” the soulish hooks. When we “see” we are set free; the hook is rendered powerless. Now the Word comes alive in a new and fresh way, aligning us to the Spirit of God. This brings hope and vision to our soul where there was despair and doubt. Now we can be in full agreement with the Word and when we release it through our mouth it carries dunamis power to defeat the enemy’s lies. During the Head of the Year gathering at Glory of Zion, I had a vision that unfolded into a second vision the next day as I sought the Lord. The first part of the first vision was worshippers interacting with angels. The Lord revealed that this year there would be increased angelic assistance bringing us strategies and tools for victory. 


The vision then segued into a fiery gate guarded by a nearly 20 foot tall fiery armored warrior with a fiery torch. The gate was massive, larger than a football field. Just beyond the gate was the Lord seated on what seemed to be a fiery chariot because it had wheels. As I looked closer, I saw that it was actually a throne with wheels. These were all made of fire, yet the Lord Himself was in glowing white. I heard that the Body of Christ would go through baptisms of fire in His presence to be purged of mindsets and structures hindering the Kingdom being manifest through us. The second vision the next day revealed series of multiple gates. I heard that these would be gates we would go through as we move into areas of promise. 


Through each gates are treasures that are guarded by demonic beings and structures. Only after we have allowed the fires of the Holy One to burn can we remove the treasures, and each will require an internal work for release of what is rightfully ours. One strategy revealed declaring Truth; recognizing that the kingdom of darkness is upheld by lies. Whenever we hear something that is not true in the Kingdom, our strategy will be to declare the Truth. When we see a situation that is not of the Kingdom and is revealing death, hell and the grave, our strategy is to declare and represent the Kingdom in fullness and authority over the works of darkness. 


The demonic realm is deceptive and attaches itself to the fear in us and to the seeds that were planted by the world, the flesh and the fiery darts of the evil one. The battle is fierce because the Kingdom of God is at hand; it is time to possess new land! We must be on high alert, discerning the voices and the situations that we encounter, and God is giving us fresh Ruach breath upon us, so we are well able! It is a time to redeem what has been captured by the evil one, and we are receiving tools from heaven to bring into time so that we can take back what has been stolen. It is time of restitution, reclaiming the earth to the rightful owner…the Lord God Almighty! Turn those fiery darts into truth-tipped arrows and flaming swords! It is time to battle and take possession of the new lands God has promised us! Alane Haynes View Bio AlaneHaynes.com

Sharing on faith, and how to increase it or build it

If you don't have any faith today, or little faith or not enough faith
Never mind, it's a starting point and you can grow your faith bigger today.



Some of the ways to grow your faith bigger
is by: 
  • Reading your bible
  • Listening to messages on developing spiritual gifts
  • Listening to messages on developing the fruit of the Spirit
  • Listening to messages on the gospel of Jesus Christ
  • Listening to messages on the gospel of the kingdom
  • Listening to messages on the kingdom of God
  • Listening to messages on the love of God
  • Listening to messages on serving God rightly
  • Listening to messages on the covenant
  • Listening to messages on the Holy Spirit
You should listen to messages daily

Listening to Christian music that focuses on God, Jesus and Him being the son of God, on the majesty and sovereignty of God
Valuing your secret place with God, giving priority to devotion etc

I want to share this PDF of a partner's letter from KCM.org a ministry I partner with. Read it here: KCM April Monthly BVOV Magazine

Say the word to yourself and to your world daily

Surrendering your soul: no masks/faces with the Lord

What is the process of surrendering your soul?

Yes you say the words, how well do you mean it?



You discover just how well with the passage of time and daily living and motives and intentions and choices and chances. How much of your soul is really the Lord's?

The process if surrendering your soul takes you along the path of letting go of the things that already have a hold of your soul, money, pain, hurt, offence, unforgiveness, world stuff.

I will simply say that you and the Holy Ghost will know when the things that once move you or held you no longer move you or hold you.

The first step in any of this is getting a relationship with the Holy Ghost.

The Spirit of God wants your obedience and your trust. This is a daily process, learning to trust that no matter what is happening, the Holy Spirit is for you. His greatest desire is for you to accomplish purpose and please their Father, that is the work of the Spirit of God in your life.

Just as the Holy Spirit can be grieved, you also can be grieved or hurt, guard your heart cos when you are grieved or hurt, it won't function right. At it's best, when it is functioning right, it is functioning in sync with Father God.


So there's some content for emotional healing that you can try. Read this and please don't pretend that your life is perfect. We know the faces/masks we wear with others, with God we should come naked, open.

We are not to be abrasive or unfeeling but open. That's the road to God using us/anyone. When we can trust Him with everything.

See this

Prayer: Lord, bless this word and make it useful in Jesus name, amen. Holy Spirit use this word for your glory and cause us to walk in increased revelation leading to your choices for us in Jesus name, amen.

Sharing some encouragement

Many times I struggle to find meaning
At other times my position in Christ is clear to me
Brighter than the noon day sun

I am not perfect
When I sense the sea trying to sweep me away
I throw in Christ as my anchor and His word as my solid rock
the only place where my feet is steady

I found this article in my mail today and it is talking about the glory, someone I know intimately...

I hope you find some clarity in it
Joel 2 says God is going to pour out His Spirit and we are in the last days
This is just some heads up so you understand this season

Yes the antiChrist is coming
Yes, men will be lovers of themselves more than lovers of God
It is heart breaking news



Of all the prophecies about the last days, this is the one that I love to focus on, because it lets me know that Christians are not powerless
We have the power of the Holy Spirit...

I am praying that we will take advantage of the help that the Spirit of God wants to give.

WILL WE RECOGNIZE THE GLORY WHEN RELIGION BECOMES UNGLUED?

A Word by Wanda Alger

The Lord is working on His Bride. As national turmoil increases, and believers are challenged and threatened on a daily basis, the Lord is preparing and equipping us to become a glorious church. In getting ready for the supernatural outpouring of the Holy Spirit to come, the Lord wants us to recognize and discern the character of His glory, for Religion is about to become unglued! He is about to manifest His glory in profound ways and is calling us to work together so that the corporate Bride can walk as one in His purpose. This means we are going to have to get over some of our differences and begin to focus on the non-negotiables of our faith.

DISCERN HIS GLORY

“For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord as the waters cover the sea.” (Habakkuk 2:14 ESV)

It is not just His glory that will fill the entire earth, but the knowledge of His glory. This is the ability to perceive, understand, recognize, and embrace the essence of a supernatural God and the realm in which He lives. Part of knowing God is knowing where He comes from. As we learn more about heavenly realities, we see a bigger picture of Who God really is and what His purpose is for us here.

There are forerunners, even now, who are being caught up into the third heaven and having supernatural encounters, just like the apostle Paul. They are being used to help prepare the church for a dramatic increase of supernatural activity on the earth in the days to come. We need to pay attention. There will always be counterfeits, but only because there is a real and tangible realm that is beyond us. We must know the difference and celebrate this realm where seeming impossibilities are natural. The Holy Spirit is pouring out increased wisdom and revelation for the very purpose of knowing Him – and the heavenly realms – better (Ephesians 1:17-20). The Lord wants us to increase in this understanding so that we can engage with Him, as well as bring many others into the kingdom realities of heaven on earth.

RELIGION UNGLUED

I had an experience a few weeks ago where our garage got flooded by an unexpected water break. Nothing got damaged except 2 family Bibles that just happened to be in a carboard box sitting on the floor. The one was over 100 years old and was a Family Bible that was so huge, it was only meant as a centerpiece. The ornately-decorated covers protected much of the book, but the spine of the Bible became unglued. And, though many of the pages were waterlogged, the interior words and pictures were preserved. The other Bible was smaller but also had the same wrinkled effect.  They were both so impacted by the water, they were forever altered, even though their essence was protected.

The Lord spoke to me through this to indicate that the coming FLOOD of the HOLY SPIRIT was going to be messy. It was going to impact many religious mindsets from the past that focused solely on appearance rather than on the content inside. Not only will this coming wave of glory and Fear of the Lord forever alter the appearance of kingdom realities, but it will cause many religious minds to become "unglued!" Yet, the integrity and Spirit of God’s Word will remain.

When this coming wave of glory comes, everything will change. Nothing will be the same and we will no longer “judge by the cover.” For those who have learned to recognize God’s glory and the work of the Holy Spirit, a new paradigm will emerge and kingdom realities will displace old belief systems that no longer bring life. However, for some, the changes will be so outside their comfort zone, they will be unable to “hold it together.” The Lord is telling us now so that we can work to preserve the unity of our faith through those things that truly make us one.

"For through Him we both have access in one Spirit to the Father. So then you are no longer strangers and aliens, but you are fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God, built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus Himself being the cornerstone." (Ephesians 2:18-20 ESV)

The expressions of our faith and how things look will vary, but the essence of God’s Word and His character and nature, will always remain the same. If we just stick together, we won’t have to become unglued!

THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN DOGMA AND DOCTRINE

Dogma represents those beliefs that are non-negotiable for a Christian. They are the essentials to our faith that are timeless and eternal (the virgin birth, inerrancy of Scripture, the physical death and resurrection of Jesus, etc.). Doctrines, on the other hand, are interpretations about various issues that are not as clear-cut (water baptism, end-times theology, leadership roles in the church, etc.).  In addition, all believers have OPINIONS about these doctrines and practices of faith, based on their backgrounds, experiences, and personal preference.

The body of Christ cannot afford to be divided over doctrines or opinions. We will never agree on all our doctrines, and we most certainly will never agree on our opinions! However, we can agree on those timeless scriptural truths and principles that set us apart as believers in Christ. This is what must be encouraged, celebrated, and made priority in the days to come. It is the unconditional love of the Father, salvation through Jesus Christ, and the indwelling power of the Holy Spirit that reflect and illustrate just Who our God is. We must acknowledge and honor each of these aspects of the Godhead if we are to see the fullness of heaven's glory released.
If we are to be a Bride without spot or wrinkle, it will only come as we purpose to walk and work together, even through our various perspectives, ideologies, and beliefs. Even as we continue processing various doctrines and growing in our faith practices, we can still stand as one so that our combined understanding and knowledge of the glory of the Lord can fill the whole earth.

"Not by might, nor by power, but by My Spirit, says the Lord of hosts (Zechariah 4:6)

The walk, the way, the path

It hurts when folks speak with hindsight and act like they have foresight
Or could have had insight, human nature always tries to shift me out of position.

I am thankful for the Holy Ghost who does the heavy weight lifting
I just get to show up and display what He's done and what He's doing.

I have been practically chanting, Lord help me cos I know I can't do this on my own.

I am used to being misunderstood
This is the path.

This song speaks God's truth
and all the things I can't say, it says.

Ask the LORD to show you the depth of the love He has for you
You will be calm when you know

HE HAS YOUR BACK, GOD DOES!

Trust Him
Meanwhile listen and be at peace

Let's share some things

14 In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins:
Redemption:
God saved from sin, error and evil on the cross of calvary, God regained the dominion He gave to Adam, that the devil stole back when Jesus shed His blood on the cross (the blood of God). He regained, restored, recovered, and repossessed all that was ours that the devil stole.

15 Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature:
Christ looks exactly like the God we have not seen. He is the first born from the dead. He is the first born of a new type of creation that live like God on the earth not to oppress or dominate but to show forth the glory of the Lord. To be exactly as if Jesus is on earth when you are there. For it to be as if Jesus showed up when you show up. Go read Isaiah 53, you are to extend His days. Isaiah says he shall see His seed. 

16 For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:
Jesus was the author of everything created. He is the word made flesh. Everything made in heaven or in earth, everything seen and unseen, thrones (whatever kind of rulers) dominions (whatever kind of ruling power good or bad) principalities (spirits of either the darkness or the light) powers (any kind of power/s), all things were created by Him and for Him so He won't panic if you tell Him about anything

17 And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.
There is nothing that was made without His say-so
18 And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence.
He is the head of the church (any church) He is the beginning and the first born from the dead, the second Adam. In all things He has the preeminence, He rules over all things.
19 For it pleased the Father that in him should all fullness dwell;
God was pleased for His fullness to dwell in Christ Jesus. The same way He is pleased to dwell in us when we submit to the Lordship of Christ.

20 And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven.
Having made peace through the blood of Jesus. Was there war before? Yes. Man was alienated from God for good because Christ came into the earth to die. When Christ died on the cross, the wrath of God was satisfied in the body of Jesus. Anyone who surrendered to stay under the Lordship of Christ was then made new. The only fulfilment was to submit your righteous (filthy rags) and receive the righteousness of Christ by coming under His Lord. Then you could live the life Adam lived before the fall.
21 And you, that were sometime alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now hath he reconciled

Here's what I was talking about.
Alienated from God meant you were living without everything that He provided for Adam to utilize on the earth. In Christ means you now have access to the favour of God. power to defeat your enemies because you didn't have to fight your enemies, you had a God who could and a God who was committed to responding to your call and who could lead you out of sticky situations and would always turn things to your favour. 
It meant that you were on the earth but not alone that you had a God who was on the look out for you not out of duty but out of love.
You had a God who loved you unconditionally and continued to love you as He groomed you on earth to do His will.

You have a God who loves to hear you talk, sing, and laugh with Him and that that is not being crazy but the communion of the Holy Spirit.
There's so much more. If you want to learn more, read John Bevere, read Kenneth Copeland, and Kenneth Hagin and get to know the Spirit of God and how He relates with you.

The Holy Spirit wants you to live a successful life and He will help you if you ask.

Being born again is restoration of dominion

Being born again is restoration of dominion
Satan has boundaries and limits 
You are marked for blessing by the Lord God

If you are born again, God has taken responsibility for you
He has sent His Spirit to lead and guide you
Know this: you are blessed

Believe God
Doubt the enemy, adversary and the devil
The devil is a liar

God speaks truth
Learn to take appropriate actions to effect the blessing
Thank God for Galatians 3:13

Declare that you are blessed, anointed, are ordained to win
Say it

Stop saying what the enemy tells you
Say what God in His word tells you about the man in Christ

The Holy Spirit speaks specific words

Learn to obey the Holy Ghost that speaks. I don't have too much words, just watch and do what you hear.

"Doing exactly what God tells you to do is the key to your safety" - Keith Moore

He speaks to you for your good. God expects you to walk as one who is wise and who understands the will of the LORD.

"If you are being led by things out here, you are going to be misled" - Kenneth Copeland

You are supposed to be led by the Spirit of God. I am thankful that I am led by the Spirit of God.

My prayer for you is...


My prayer for you is that your eyes would open to see how much Jesus love, how much Father God loves you and that you would desire the Holy Ghost baptism.

The broken and the hurt places in you can be touched and healed by the Holy Spirit in an instant.

God can do anything. He wants you to be His witnesses.

I pray that you would desire the Holy Ghost and spend time getting to know Him and be safe in Him for the rest of eternity.

Character lessons...




This is the simple lesson I learned today.

Funny thing, Jacob forgave and moved on

He's a deal maker.

He leaves other people to do the job but he makes the deals...

Good one.

The things that matter...

I don't want to ever forget the things that matter.

I gave my life to Christ in the year 2000. Our campuses were on fire for God and it was a wild fire with the most unlikely people surrendering to Jesus.

Were they being hoodwinked?

I doubt it. Sincerely do. 

I know how much effort the LORD put into convincing me to surrender to Him.

You see I was raised catholic. My dad's family were staunch Catholics so it was kind of shameful to attend another church. 

I knew this at the back of my mind as my friends and I attended fellowship every week. We got there a little after prayer and just in time for worship. I mean, why would someone spend one hour repeating some indecipherable phrases, what could it do?

I knew I could never really be serious in fellowship even though I loved the worship, I was born catholic and would forever be catholic for they were the first church ever and other churches that broke out of it were lesser churches...

Today I partner with more than one church in the furtherance of God's kingdom. I know how important this is, some of the people closest to me believe I have been hoodwinked. Why work 30 days and hand over your hard earned cash to a human being like yourself?

Time will fail me to talk about the times that God has schooled me on the tithes being His and that He receives them in heaven. I am not really interested in convincing anyone about tithes. I might never have believed if the LORD had not spoken to me.

There are schools of thought that believe that God does not speak. I believe that as God spoke to Adam in the cool of the day, so does He speak with me, else I would be comfortable attending church say 40 times a year in all the 365 days and keeping the harvest festivals. I didn't leave the catholic church just to attend another church that keeps to tradition.

I moved because the LORD asked it of me

Here's a copy of my partnership letter...




P.S. If you didn't read any of the gibberish I wrote, read the PDF in the above line. Click on it and save it and start learning what salvation entails.

Salvation is a day's decision and a lifetime journey.

The most amazing thing about my first year was that indescribable peace that always settled on me during and after worship. It wasn't prayer even though I prayed with everyone. Worship was the big deal. It could cement in my soul what all the ten thousand billion words being spoken by so many people couldn't do.

In my first year of salvation, I knew only one scripture by heart that stuck with me even after bible study and all:

It was "God has not given me a spirit of fear, but a spirit of power, love and a sound mind"

Take note: The bible writes Holy Spirit or Spirit of God in capitals 'Spirit'.

When it writes about other spirits like human spirit, spirit of fear, spirit of power, spirit of belial etc are other ways of describing influences

Some people fear the word spirit, please be aware that every human being also has a spirit. 

Proverbs 18:14
The spirit of a man will sustain his infirmity; but a wounded spirit who can bear? Holman Christian Standard 

(Note that this is proverbs so they are not even speaking of the recreated human spirit)

1 Pet 3:4
Rather, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God's sight.

(This is speaking of the born again man, of his spirit).

How does growth happen?

Growth happens when you meditate on the word of God and on His rhema word to you. In any given church, everyone is at different levels of growth and the LORD will always bring His word to you through the five-fold to provoke your growth.

Why do I say this?

One time I was in a cataconic state spiritually and I didn't know.

It was a special program. A visiting minister asked, who comes to church regularly? I put up my hand feeling very proud of myself. He asked, who can remember what they were taught last week?

As if my mind had drawn a blank, I could not remember even one thing. I, known for being smart and tops of my class, Tessa with the photographic memory and I couldn't remember a thing.

I was flabbergasted.

It also caused a change for me. That was a classic example of the enemy came and stole the words because I either didn't believe the word or I did not intend to put the word to practice. 

So you can actively be listening in church and yet not growing...



That's it for today!

Creating an atmosphere of worship & faith

Build an altar of His presence in your home and everywhere you are.
Come under the influence of God
Intentionally stay there

Create a way of thinking the word of God
Form a culture of the kingdom of God

Hear God's word intentionally
Create a space where Christ rules everything around you

Because you are intentionally conscious of Him
And intentionally bow to Him

REAL POST: A great day...

I was so excited to find this post.



Have you ever walked into a room and suddenly felt angry, fearful, sad and you were not feeling that way 5 minutes before walking into the room?

I had a lot of stress when I started feeling atmospheres. Most people stay silent about this and many people don't know how to use this.


I learned:
- How to partner with the word of God
- How not to partner with what is in the atmosphere
- How to build walls
- How to silent the negative committee that try to have a meeting in my head
- How to send wrong emotions or atmospheres back to the sender (na devil)
- How to grow by trusting in (partnering with) people who don't already think you are crazy (those who think you are crazy won't listen)

You will learn other things

Watch this video and tell me if you learn anything...



It helps you navigate the atmospheres, push back what you need to push back and retain the peace of God. 

Foundation scripture: Ephesians 6

Our war is against principalities and powers and not against flesh and blood. Stop making enemies with people who are simply responding to the atmosphere, just take authority over the atmosphere and bring the kingdom into bear, superimpose God's kingdom and shift the contrary atmosphere away, and establish the kingdom in that atmosphere.

I hate feeling helpless and I know that there are other people who may feel same way, who may be searching.

While I have been busy pretending to be an un-empowered Christian, many people have reached out to me for help and I have been unable to help them because I inadvertently refused to develop some areas of my life and for that I ask the LORD for mercy.

I take responsibility and I choose to submit myself to development as much as I can and as much as the Holy Spirit leads so I can do God's will on earth.

Yesterday night, the Holy Ghost said, refuse to pretend at all times, just observe protocols and be willing to learn.


Grateful for the midwives that the LORD has been sending. I have been defensive but I choose to submit to the will of the Father, let Him do what He knows best how to do as I yield.


I believe the Lord is pleased with this.

He desires for His saints to be equipped, empowered and to know who they are and I will do my best to share what I know, have learned and I will be open to learn what I don't know.

Thank You, Lord.

Current read and what Nigeria looks like at 57

Christianity can be frustrating.
Not Christianity
Christianity is simple

What is difficult is knowing what to do
and having all the answers.

Do I have all the answers?
Do other Christians have all the answers
No

That's why it is called faith though
aint it?

If you have all the answers, why do you need faith?

Hmmm
I am at crossroads
Anxiety attacks because a new step I guess
I am moving into my place
It is a huge step
A big one

Thank God for His faithfulness
So since I had an anxiety attack the whole of yesterday
I need to steady myself
I am reading a book that might help

It is called Killing Krytonite.

Written by John Bevere


Remember superman
He is all powerful
But krptonite is his weakness
We all have some weakness or the other

Grateful that I have the LORD
and so when I feel weak emotionally or otherwise
I can depend on Him

I did some counselling
I never was too great at receiving counselling because I overthink everything
But books have always been my safe place
I can receive knowledge and process it as I see fit
So I am making new moves

I have God the ever present One going with me on this one
I will take the krytonite out by the Spirit of the Lord
and destroy the root/source of krytonite by the blood

Making massive progress by the power, presence and the goodness of the God who is present with me at all times.

I will blog soon and let you know what I learned in the book
It is written by John Bevere.

Let wisdom be an ornament on your neck...

I love necklaces.
I have this silver necklace I never take off. I do everything without it. One of the knacks about me is that the moment I take it off, I may misplace it. So once I find jewellery I can wear consistently, I never change it.



So I want to talk about the value of wisdom. How you need wisdom in every area of life, including in your spiritual life. It is extracts from a favourite message. If you want to get the message, just email me at tessa.doghor@outlook.com and I will give you the message.

Part of my motto in 2017 is not casting pearls before swine, I need to qualify everyone before I give access. I am doing this not because I am nasty but to help someone specific and reduce gossip and criticism from naysayers. I do pray that only those with some level of faith visit this blog because until you have some faith, it will be difficult to get blessed. I am not going to STOP telling (preaching) about the kingdom of God though, I will just be wiser about the gift of God.

Proverbs 4:7
Wisdom is the most important thing; so get wisdom. If it costs everything you have, get understanding.
Treasure wisdom and it will make you great; hold on to it, and it will bring you honor.
It will be like flowers in your hair and like a beautiful crown upon your head

(My bible version) 

Proverb 3:21-23 says something similar.

The bible likens wisdom to putting on ornaments. 

The funny thing about the bible is that you think the scriptures that release power are just in the new testament. But as the years go by you learn that even the old testament scriptures are just as capable of producing power as the new testament scriptures.

Just make up your mind now that the power that comes from the bible is greater than any other power in writing or in application, i.e living.

If you have been born again, you probably have an experience in God and area in which you know God and you share or minister from that point of view but be certain that God is ministering to His children all over the world from where they are, to where He wants them to be.

My first understanding of wisdom comes from my eldest sister. One of the scriptures she consistently quoted was: "Wisdom is profitable to direct".

Funny enough, my first pastor was in the same class as ,my elder sister in high school and so their words echo in my head. Maybe it is that the people I respect when it comes to spiritual things speak so loudly that their words echo in my head or it is that the Holy Spirit brings these things to my remembrance, I am not certain but I hear some scriptures in my head and in my heart.

My sister was witness to a word I heard consistently for 6 weeks. I told her immediately because I trusted her. When it comes to spiritual things, I trust my family first with anything I have heard from the Lord and then my close friends. I tell my family and my close friends my dreams, some of them at least and many times in the last 10 years I have had some dreams of friends giving me instructions in dreams that produced wonderful things in my life when I practiced it in the spiritual.

How does wisdom come to man?
There is the wisdom that comes from reading God's word and it is to be prioritized and there is also the wisdom that is used for practical living, I believe that is the wisdom of God.

Let me explain what I mean by practical living. When I say practical living, I don't mean living like every other unbeliever on the earth, I mean living like the children of Israel, only a higher version. I mean living like a covenanted person, someone in whom God is actively involved in your life. I mean, living by phronesis. Phronesis means the wisdom of God.

Let me not get sidetracked. When I just got saved, I had terrible acne. Over the first 9 months of my being saved, the acne cleared from my face. Over the next 5 years, the acne cleared from the faces of all the members of my family and the younger ones who didn't have acne did not develop acne.

The series of events that yielded that deliverance from acne seemed natural. One of my pastors asked us to pray about the things that we wanted to change in our lives. Vain chic that I am, I prayed about my hair and my face. So a couple of weeks after the prayer one of my closest friends comes to me and says: "I bought Neo Medrol to use on my face but I found that it didn't work for me so I think you should use it".

She then seats and explains to me how to use it. I am only allowed to wash my face once in the morning and apply it on my face, then again in the night and apply it again. I was not allowed to wear cream or makeup. In college I didn't wear makeup so not wearing cream for a month would not be a huge sacrifice for me. I am a stickler for details so I did exactly as she said, reminding her that I hoped it worked even though I did not spend money on the treatment.

Long story short, I did not have even a single people for a whole year. For the next five years I did not get even a single pimple. My face got the chance to become smooth. I stopped using all antiseptic soap and that was how I started using bathing soap and found it easier to pay my tithes because I don't have one N800 soap to buy (at that time o, not now). Well that is how I discovered that I was pretty; story for another day.

I believe that was practical wisdom in action. Since the Holy Ghost knows the road to pass to give me information, He's using it just fine. My hair became fuller than it was then and I got strategies to make my hair that did not over emphasis the weak points.

So tell me, what are the ways in which you apply the wisdom in the word of God to your life? That it is bigger than what the world prescribes, that is phronesis?

Let's share.

If you are not saved and this is just like jargons to you, Visit this page and learn how to surrender your life to the leadership of the Holy Spirit and to the Lordship of Jesus Christ.
